Dr Dental – Drinking though a straw is better for your teeth.
01/14/21

If you ever had your teeth whiten you may know the trick about drinking stain-able drinks such as coffee though a straw in order to maintain you newly whiten teeth. However, drinking sodas, sports/energy drink and juices though a straw is also a good idea in order to help protect your tooth enamel. Many of those types of drinks contain acids, such as citric and phosphoric, that can erode dental enamel, even if they are diet or sugar-free versions. By drinking though a straw you can position it toward the back of mouth limiting the contact the drinks have with your teeth. Therefore helping to preserve the tooth enamel.

Some Teas can be Good for Your Teeth.
01/11/21

Green and Black teas contain polyphenols, antioxidant plant compounds that prevent plaque from adhering to your teeth and help reduce your chances of developing cavities and gum disease. Christine D Wu PhD, who has conducted several studies on tea and oral health care, states tea also has potential for reducing bad breath odor because it inhibits the growth of the bacteria that cause the odor. Many teas also contain fluoride (from the leaves and the water it’s steeped in), which helps protect tooth enamel from decay.

Dr Dental – Mercury Fillings
01/08/21

Mercury in dental fillings not risky as once thought.

The FDA concludes mercury in dental fillings not risky. The government declared that silver dental fillings contain too little mercury to harm the millions who’ve had cavities filled with them. This includes young children, and that only people allergic to mercury need to avoid them.

This was something of an about face for the FDA, which last year settled a lawsuit with anti-mercury activists by posting on its Web site a precaution saying questions remained about whether the small amount of mercury vapor the fillings can release were enough to harm the developing brains of fetuses or the very young. FDA said its final scientific review ended that concern.

Still, the agency did slightly strengthen how it regulates the fillings, urging dentists to provide their patients with a government-written statement detailing the mercury controversy and what science shows.

01/05/21

Well apparently John Lennon’s molar was sold for about $31000.00 an the Omega Auction House in early November of 2010. it is probably safe to say your tooth will probably never be worth any money much less $31000.00. Therefore it is important to take proper care of your teeth to avoid having high dental care cost. Having dental insurance in place will also help control your cost for dental care.

DrDental – Dental Health and Diabetes
12/22/20

Did you know that bleeding or swollen gums can be a warning sign of type 1 or type 2 diabetes?

When you have this disease, your mouth is not as powerful at fighting germs, so you are more likely to get infections like gum disease. High blood sugar levels that go along with diabetes make it harder for your body to heal, which can make gum disease worse. Therefore if you have diabetes it is important that you maintain good oral health care habits at home and see your dentist regularly which may be more then just twice a year depending on your oral health.

Dr Dental – Improvements in Teeth Bonding and Filling Materials
12/04/20

You may like to know that now if you chip a tooth you can get it fixed and have it look more nautural than it did in the past. that is thanks to the improvements in bonding material and bonding techniques.

A resin/plastic material is used today as a bonding material, which is shinier and longer lasting than the substance used in the past. Dentists will put layers of resin on a tooth to bond and repair it. Because of the wider range of shades available, they can better blend the bonding material to the tooth’s natural color.

In restorations, when a cavity needs to be filled, many dentists have also abandoned amalgams for “tooth-colored” composite or porcelain fillings, which look more natural.

Dr Dental – Orthodontics
11/30/20

Orthodontics is the prevention and correction of malocclusion of the teeth and associated dentofacial incongruities. it is the treatment of irregularities in the teeth (especially of alignment and occlusion) and jaws, including the use of braces.

The demand for orthodontic service extends from the child to adult, although human bone responds to tooth movement best in a person under the age of 18, and it is generally agreed that children benefit more from treatment than do adults. In general, oral health and physical appearance are the two most important reasons for undertaking a course of orthodontic care.

Dr Dental – Improving Dental Health Though High Tech X-Rays
11/10/20

Digitized X-rays are now replacing traditional radiographs in many dental offices, as they become more popular with dentists.

Digital X-rays are faster and more efficient than traditional radiographs. Your dentist can also store digital images on the computer and compare them with previous or future images to see how your dental health is being maintained.

Digital X-rays dose help in finding cavities but they also help look at the bone below the teeth to determine if the bone level of support is good. Dentists can use the X-rays to check the placement of an dental implant. These digital X-rays also help endodontists to see if they have performed the procedure properly and because the sensor and phosphor plates are more sensitive to X-rays than film is, the radiation dose is significantly reduced.

Dr Dental – Creating Protein is More Effective then Bone Grafting in Dental Implants
11/06/20

A study shows that a bone creating protein has been found to be more effective then bone grafting in dental implants. Some people that get dental implants may have either not enough bone or bone that is too thin to hold the dental implant when that happens, the current solution is to do a bone graft to anchor in the permanent prosthetic teeth. However, that technique can be problematic because it involves additional surgeries to harvest the bone

Studies done at the GHSU Laboratory for Applied Periodontal & Craniofacial Regeneration found that implanting bone morphogenetic protein in the sinus more new bone will form within four weeks than using conventional bone grafting at the same site.
